Angela Bassett blew fans away with her fit physique and youthful good looks on Wednesday when she shared a selection of beautiful selfies on Instagram which left many of her 2.5million followers convinced she was aging backwards. 

The 9-1-1 star, 62,  showed off her cinched waist and fun-loving attitude in the snapshots in which she was wearing a black corset underneath an animal-print suit.

"Aging backwards," wrote one, while another said: "We should call @im.angelabassett Angela Button," and a third commented: "You have always been stunningly beautiful, Queen."

It’s hard to believe Angela will be 63 this year and has been gracing our screens for more than 30 years, but she insists she’s not obsessed by age. 

"You don’t really know what to say when someone says: 'Oh my God, you look so good,'" she told Net-A-Porter. "What do they expect? For you to be completely broken down?"
